The Vardaman History Project owes a debt of gratitude to Essie Whitehorn Cochran for the many written but unpublished articles that she wrote about early Vardaman as well as the many times she sat down with people who were interested in Vardaman history and told them of her memories. We also are grateful for Francis Blue Cox who collected as much written information, newspaper clippings, etc., as she was able to find as well as sharing her own memories and preserving information that Mrs. Cochran provided.
The following references were also wonderful resources for these web pages of Vardaman area history.
